The Things I Think About Podcast
113 – Patriotism means different things to different people. What should it mean today?
Today I had a thoughtful and inspiring conversation with Lenny McAllister about the education system in America, the dangerous march towards segregation, how to unify America and his journey into conservatism. Truly, an episode you do not want to miss. Some of our talking points:
- Can you be black and conservative?
- Which is worse, forced segregation or self-imposed segregation?
- You can choose a profession but, you can’t choose being black.
- There is value is celebrating one’s culture while also remembering our national ties.
- What’s wrong with using critical race theory to teach kids about racism?
- Have we lost a generation to the left? Will patriotism make a comeback in the next generation?
- What will it take to unify Americans again?
- Patriotism means different things to different people. What should it mean today?
